All accessory equipment associated with the antennas shall be concealed and shall not visibly protrude from the shroud or canister.
(d) The width of the canister or other shroud encasing the antennas and accessory equipment shall not exceed the width of the narrowest portion of the wireless support structure.
(e) The enclosure or shroud shall be painted to match or complement the wireless support structure.

(g) Antennas shall not impair light or views from adjacent window(s).
(h) Antennas located on the exterior of a wireless support structure shall be top-mounted on a wireless support structure. The City may approve a side-mounted antenna if, in the City's discretion, the side-mounted antenna would be more appropriate given the built environment, neighborhood character, overall site appearance or would promote the purposes in these design guidelines.
